turn it into politics. and that is what appears to be the case right now in washington, d.c. >> but, sir, politics have a huge influence in this, as we look at the nra which is large lobbying group for gun manufacturers that has supported -- they support you. you have an "a" rating from them. you have voted yes on promoting gun sellers and manufacturers. and yes on the waiting periods taking waiting periods from 72 hours to one day yes on a trigger lock law in washington, d.c. how can you say politics are not involved with this when you look at a voting record right there. the nra gives you an "a" in allowing for people like an adam lanza to have access to the weapons he might have had. his mother might have had it legally, but we cannot police what his mother is doing inside that house to keep lanza away from those weapons. >> yes, and none of the policy issues which you just ticked off would have prevented adam lanza from doing this. and it is very sad that we want to cloud the issue by making nra the policy, as opposed to adam lan za and what triggers this. think of germany, germ
that is the debate that is going to rage, especially after that nra presser today in washington. but for this town, for this moment, for this day, it is not about that. it is very important, but it is about the people and the victims and remembering them and commemorating them in beautiful ways just like this one, brooke. >> absolutely, poppy harlow, thank you so much for us in newtown. wasn't thrill a presser the nra gave, a statement, no questions answered afterward. the nra also held a moment of silence at 9:30 this morning today for the 20 children and the 6 adults slaughtered last friday in newtown schoolhouse. but hours later, the nra spelled out its own plan to prevent similar massacres in the future. the message from wayne lapierre, put guns in every school now. >> and does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school, he's already identified at this very moment? how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. i call on congress today to act immediatel

are always relatively optimistic about the economy, but even after last night and what we in washington? >> sure. you know, yes, the fiscal cliff is coming. we have known him for a long time. the dow is still over 13,000. it is not just because the market thinks we have the great deal ever. tax rates will go up. we will have deficits, as far as the eye can see. by the way, we had pretty darn good news on personal income and spending and durable goods today. the economy is hanging in there, as well. connell: i thought it would be interesting to watch the close, because to me, maybe a deal is more likely after last night because the speaker, if anything, lost his leverage. how do you view that part of it? >> in the end, there is really an infinite number of outcomes. we believeethere is really just about 25% chance that we just go over the cliff unimpeded. the sequestration happens and all of the tax hikes. some kind of deal will probably get done. if the house were to pass that bill, it could go into law. it would keep dividend and tax rates from going higher. they just cannot reach a de
: chris joining us from philadelphia, democrats' line with representative rick larsen from washington state. caller: thank you, c-span, for what you provide the american people. i find this whole situation ironic. the fiscal cliff scares me personally -- and i think president obama certainly has shown his willingness to compromise whereas the republicans and tea party do not seem to want to do so. this ideology they are sticking to will ruin our economy and i find it hypocritical because their chief criticism of the president during the presidential campaign was his mismanagement of our economy and they are willing to mismanage our economy down the drain on some principal. it does not seem they care about the american people. they care about the part of the american people, the rich, that is what seems like to me and i am sick of it. i used to be republican and i switched party about, i guess eight or 10 years ago. which has something to do with philadelphia politics as well because you cannot have much say in philadelphia politics unless you are democrat but that is beside the point.

here in washington, d.c. we're not so sure we're getting out of town yet. >> they should be plans you can cancel if case you have to go right back to work. let me ask a question. jessica says pressure is a great motivator. talk about pressure last night on speaker boehner, couldn't get enough support from his own party for his plan. what does that mean for any kind of bipartisan plan they might be working out? >> it really does illustrate how difficult it is going to be for democrats to even achieve what the president laid out tonight, a scaled down version. the speaker himself said a couple of times today that he believes that the reason why he didn't get even the majority of the caucus to support him was because of a lot of difficulty voting to raise taxes, voting for anything that can be perceived as a tax increase. well, what the president is talking about even scaled down version is definitely raising taxes. and raising taxes on people making $250,000 or more, at least households, so that's going to be difficult to do. that's why reality check here, talking to democrats and repub

. first signs of a changing dynamic in washington. many believe friday's unspeakable acts in connecticut could mark a tipping point. the "washington post" reporting that president obama ordered cabinet members to order proposals to curb gun violence, a push that could include a new ban on assault rifles. sources say vice president joe biden will spearhead that effort. still the white house press secretary jay carney wasn't ready to unveil specifics. >> it's a complex problem that will require complex solution. no single piece of legislation no single action will fully address the problem. so i don't have a specific agenda to announce to you today. >> one of the nation's leading proponents for gun regulation, mayor michael bloomberg, said he is prepared to use his own personal fortune for this cause. adding there's simply no need to wait for another tragedy to happen. >> if the massacre in tucson wasn't enough to make our national leaders act, and if the more recent bloodshed in aurora, colorado, oak creek, wisconsin, portland, oregon and other towns wasn't enough, perhaps this slaughter
. is washington ready for a fight over guns that no one thought would happen? >>> blast from the past. find out what michael dukakis has to say about the idea of being a u.s. senator once john kerry becomes officially the next secretary of state. being a little bit coy. could he run? here comes the new. >>> good morning from washington. it is wednesday, december 19th, 2012. this is the. i'm chuck todd. >>> today could be the day the two sides come together for a big deficit reduction deal or we could be 24 hours from it totally falling apart. that seems like telling you everything and nothing at the same time. but there's something to this. follow me here. the president and speaker boehner have really never been closer to a deal. they both made major concessions over the last i'd say 72 hours. the nation still mourning the tragedy in connecticut. both sides have admitted that the tone of the talks have changed. >> an event like that, as tragic as it is, brings us a little closer together. >> i continue to have hope that we can reach an agreement. it's not a time to put americans through more st
is that? tom foreman is in washington to speculate. good morning. >> reporter: hi, carroll. we don't know what that means. there's been speculation it will have something to do with mental health issues because certainly at a lot of local levels people talked about that on the republican side. people on the conservative side saying that has to be addressed as much, perhaps more than the gun issue itself. so we're expecting that may be the direction to go but the truth is we don't really know. what we do know is that the nra was quiet immediately after this. they often are after such incidents and they usually say as they did this time out of respect for the community and the family involved but now that a little bit of time has passed what we would certainly expect here is that there would be a clear message to the white house and to others which is be careful about overreacting at this point because the nra will push back and certainly they have proven that politically they have the power to do it not only nationally but certainly at the state level. carol? >> tom foreman reporting live
